5.0 out of 5 stars Another monstrous read..., 2 Jan. 2014
By 
This review is from: Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster (Paperback)
After his fascinating 'The Beast of Boggy Creek' book, Lyle Blackburn has returned with another top-notch investigation, this time in search of the facts...and fiction, surrounding the alleged 'Lizardman' of Bishopville. Once again Lyle, and partner, take to the swamps in order to wade through a mystery that has long remained stagnant but like all good researchers Lyle peels back the layers to reveal that maybe, just maybe something strange did lurks in the murkier parts of Scape Ore Swamp, but also proves that at times the legend isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Whilst it's highly unlikely there ever was a scaly humanoid roaming the boggy bottoms of Bishopville, not all of the reports can be explained so easily, but it's also nice to read about the impact this alleged creature had on local tourism as well as reading about the newspaper headlines and eye-witness statements. Admittedly there is the occasional moment when the book loses itself, but it's always great when an author revisits an old story and sheds new light on it, so whether you are a fan of monster stories in general, or consider yourself a bit of a cryptozoological buff or sceptic, 'Lizard Man' is still a truly monstrous read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bog trotting beauty of a book., 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fascinating investigation into the strange saga of the bishopville lizardman. The strength of the book is the fact the author has spent time in the area, interviewing witnesses and the local sheriff as well as traipsing the swamp trails for himself, digging up lots of information not commonly known outside the local area.
A great follow up to his book on Boggy Creek.

I really enjoyed this book very well written and sticking to the facts . I have now bought ''the monster of Boggy Creek '' by the same author.
